Question: The ELT
(emergency locater transmitter) on my airplane is due for inspection. Will I be
able to legally fly my airplane without the ELT installed?
Answer: Yes, you will be able to fly your airplane without an installed ELT for no more than 90 days after it is initially removed for inspection, as stated in 14 CFR 91.207(f)(10). The aircraft record must contain an entry including the date of initial removal, the make, model, serial number, and reason for removing the transmitter, along with a placard in view of the pilot stating, "ELT not installed." For additional information and requirements regarding the ELT, view the AOPA Emergency Locater Transmitters subject report online. To learn more about the improvements and the future technology of the ELT, view AOPA's regulatory brief.
